Course Description

A closer look at the thermal performance and sustainability qualities offered by insulated metal panels.
The course addresses the environmental benefits derived from the use of Insulated metal panels in the roof and wall systems. It educates attendees on the insulated metal panels’ superior energy efficiency and sustainability. It further touches on how metal wall and roof systems support the structural design and integrity of a building.

Note: Certificates of Completion will be emailed in a PDF format for your records right away. Please allow for up to 3 to 4 weeks to receive AIA credit for the course.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the level of thermal performance that can be designed into an insulated metal panel (IMP) roof system, supporting the creation of a highly efficient building envelope.
  • Describe the qualities that insulated metal panels possess that allow them to provide continuous insulation to the building envelope, satisfying building codes.
  • Provide examples of how insulated metal panels provide the continuous air and vapor barriers in the roof or exterior wall system, managing the movement of air and moisture in the building enclosure.
  • Identify the several ways that the selection of insulated metal panels support sustainable design criteria.
